* ''Fanfic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': All of the [[VideoGame/DungeonKeeper villains]], and most of the heroes wonder on a regular basis where [[TrappedInAnotherWorld Empress Mercury]] gets all of her awesome equipment and magic from. Where dose she come up with these remote battle drones? The Airships, the Dominate Undead Spell? Attempts to steal/emulate it is the subject of several subplots.

* In the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' comics, ComicBook/{{Robin}} was able to get a [[CoolCar Batmobile]] shipped to San Francisco by [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l5sg9qiFAv1qbqx4xo1_500.jpg hiding it in the Batarang budget]]. (It's bigger than you'd think.) And he would've gotten away with it too if not for Kid Flash...

** One could just as easily apply this question to many of Batman's villains, most notably the Penguin and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. The Penguin is widely known for his use of trick umbrellas, while the Joker has used everything from acid-squirting flowers to electrified joybuzzers to razor-sharp playing cards.

** The {{Trope Namer|s}} is SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in Tim Burton's ''Film/{{Batman}}''. In one scene Batman rescues reporter Vicki Vale from the Joker's clutches using a zipline gun, and the Joker asks his men "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" Used again later on when Batman uses the Batwing to steal all his poison-filled balloons, causing the Joker to scream why nobody told him he had one of those things... [[{{Hypocrite}} only to later shoot it down with a four foot long revolver]].

** One of the Arkhamverse comics reveals that the Batmobile was designed by a German auto company, and the order is placed in Bruce Wayne's own name. The company owner just assumes that Batman is defrauding Wayne Enterprises.

* In the '80s cartoon ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'', it's explained that the OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent is able to afford this stuff because they saved [[Comicbook/IronMan Tony Stark]] once and he keeps them hooked up.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', any weapon Shepard acquires (including the antique Lancer and xeno-tech Particle Rifle in the latter game), aside from Heavy Weapons, instantaneously spawns copies for everyone in the party. It's explained that the copies are built in the on-board armory (being able to use them before returning to the ''Normandy'' is just an AcceptableBreakFromReality), but unlike tech lab upgrades, Shepard never has to pay for extras no matter how esoteric the gun is. The same thing happens with weapon upgrades, grenades, ammo powers and pretty much every other addon; obtain one, and you'll have enough for any situation with no fuss.

* In ''Anime/SDGundamForce'', the Dark Axis tends to use mind control devices on local robots for a MonsterOfTheWeek scenario. The Zako Zako Hour explains that they do this because the Dark Axis aren't very good at making their own stuff, which begs the question, where did they get the weapons they already have? The Zakos conclude that everything they have must have been stolen from somewhere else. [[spoiler: the final episode hints that this is true, as far as the Zakurello Gate is concerned.]]

* In the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, some criminals buy their equipment from the Tinkerer, as mentioned above. Others get their equipment furnished by their employers (ComicBook/IronMan's enemy Justin Hammer often had his scientists construct specialized weapons for the [=supervillains=] he recruited), and at least one large company runs a highly profitable black market operation in selling deadly weapons and other equipment through the "Sharper Villain Catalogue." In the early days of his career, even Comicbook/{{Hawkeye}} would buy {{Trick Arrow}}s from the Tinkerer, using money he'd stolen from drug dealers.
* For costumes, heroes and villains alike go to Leo Zelinsky, a tailor in Brooklyn who became the most popular outfitter for superhuman clothing after the Thing visited his shop. Being GenreSavvy enough to avoid conflicts, he alternates days, opening his shop for bad guys on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for heroes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. (He sees nothing wrong with this - he's just a guy trying to make a living.)
